Samsung HP-R4262

Although the 62 at the end of the model name would seem to indicate it's a step up to the HP-R52 series, this single model is actually Samsung's entry-level high-resolution plasma. It has a native resolution of 1,024x768, which means it should be able to display every detail of DVDs and deliver more detail with 720p and 1080i sources, although it still needs to scale them to fit the available pixels. It also features a built-in ATSC tuner, which means you'll be able to watch over-the-air HDTV without any extra hardware. Note that it does not include the CableCard slot of the step-up HP-R52 series, but this might not be that big of a drawback, as the current generation of CableCard cannot handle video on-demand or electronic program guide services. Its connectivity is highlighted by an HDMI input, a PC input, two component-video inputs, and both optical and coaxial digital audio outputs. While it's commonplace for HDTVs for have one or the other digital audio output, the option of having both is useful if you're short on digital inputs.
